How the mighty have literally fallen

A Salty Canon 1D Mark 3 with Canon 600mm

Now this is painful.  On Ebay, there’s a Canon 600mm super telephoto lens with a Canon 1D Mark 3 attached going for sale at a rock bottom price.  Why so cheap, sadly it’s all rather badly damaged by salt water.

Mentioned on the listing, the camera and lens fell off the side of a boat, hence the damage. Oh deary me.

At current prices, the Canon 1D Mark 3 is about £1,000 just by itself, whereas the Canon 600mm F4 super telephoto is a cool £10,000.  That is one expensive accident. Thank god for insurance eh.

You can keep your eye on the ebay listing here.
